Period Proof Swimwear - Period Swimsuit - Period swimming costume

Great for:  Whether you're expecting your first period, are established menstruator or on a lighter day of your period.

Use if: You fancy spending time at the beach or the pool without the faff of using a tampon or a menstrual cup to contain your period blood. Perfect period proof swimwear for tweens or teens for school swimming pool lessons! 

Sizing tip: Size 2 to 24 - size down if between sizes - use the straps to adjust for a small/larger bust size 

* When trying on do not remove hygiene sticker and try over own underwear - no returns will be accepted if this is removed

What we love: 

  • Made with treated nylon outer fabric which is water resistant and leak proof for lighter periods
  • Double adjustable straps means you'll have the perfect fit
  • Removable breast pads which help preserve your modesty if that's important to you, machine washing is fine but remove the breast pads and handwash separately to avoid the backing fabric from separating which may happen in the machine - this will not affect use if it occurs.
  • holds two tampons worth of menstrual blood, perfect for a light period
  • Suitable as a backup to menstrual cup or tampon for heavy flow

Period swimwear from Cheeky Pants - Period Swimwear UK - Period proof swimwear UK

'Absolutely delighted with this period swimsuit! Does what it says on the tin. Works for little leaks as well as periods.

Stylish but still practical. Adjustable. 9.5 out of 10 I’m so pleased cheeky wipes are considering expanding their range. Girl power!!' Alison, Test reviewer Dec 2021

These period swimsuits are 'gamechanging!' 

Can you swim with period swimwear? Do period bathers actually work?

The answer is a resounding YES!

Looking just like a gorgeous 'regular' bathing suit, these female swimmers for your period are not only super flattering but have a hidden absorbent lining. Perfect for peace of mind when swimming on light periods to regular flow periods.

Just like our period underwear they absorb menstrual flow without being bulky or noticeable. Our waterproof swimwear for periods means that you can pop to the pool or beach without having the worry of a pad or tampon! 'I’ve worn this in the pool and in the sea. I have it on for at least 30 mins before swimming, and because the bust support is good, I can wear it without a bra. I want decent boob support. I have stress incontinence and feel very confident wearing this.

I’m also perimenopausal and my periods are unpredictable. After 2 months without one, I now have had had a week long one. So the suit has been fantastic! I just don’t have to worry about being on my period.

I’ve stopped using tampons or moon cups so usually avoided swimming for a few days. Not anymore! I’m in the water for up to 30 minutes and have had no problems at all.'

How absorbent is Cheeky Period Proof Swimwear?

The absorbent lining is slightly thinner than some period pants, so avoid wearing solo on your heaviest days. However, the gusset is antibacterial and breathable, plus quick drying!

The outer fabric is water repellent ... take a look at our demo video below!

This stops water (from the pool or sea) absorbing into the inside of the swimsuit. To ensure this is effective make sure your swimsuit has a really good fit around the legs - you don't want any gaping when you're moving!

What is Cheeky Period Swimming Costume made of?

Lining: 100%Polyester Oeko-tex certified

Middle: 80%Polyester, 20%Nylon/PUL 100% Polyester Oeko-tex certified

Outer: 82%Nylon, 18%Spandex Oeko-tex certified

The material has been tested in sea and chlorine swimming conditions. If the costume material becomes damaged as a result of any other activities, i.e friction and/or abrasions from climbing out of the water or velcro attachments from paddle boards or surf boards leaving marks/bobbling, we cannot be held responsible. 

How do I wash my period swimwear?

Taking care of your Cheeky® period swimming costume couldn't be easier,  Please wash cold with no fabric softener or bleach. Anything hotter than 30 degrees can impact the waterproof nature of the material and failing to adhere to the washing instructions will invalidate any returns.

Please take a moment to have a read of this article on the effect Chlorine can have on all swimwear and care for your period swimsuit accordingly.
